hygge hen party

Hygge inspired

Hygge has been sweeping the nation as a must trend this year. With its Danish roots, it doesn’t fully translate the easiest into English. Think along the lines of warm cosy nights with friends, family and nature. It encourages sleep, tea, open fires, candlelight, long walks, laughter, hugs and love. What’s not to love and what is better for an autumn evening? There is a lot more depth to this Danish tradition and way of life, from the correct about of lumens for the perfect Hygge evening, to what produce and what recipes to follow.

If you are wanting to channel your inner Dane and throw a Hygge inspired hen party we suggest you stock up on lots of candles. Get comfy, wear your comfy socks and your fav jumper. Leave your phones at home or away so you are fully present in the moment. Treat yourself and your hens to some scrumptious home cooking! Bring the outdoors in with your table centre pieces. Leave all drama at the door and use this time to build and strengthen your relationships with each other. Share those embarrassing stories of how you met, your favourite or fondest moments.
